Maqamat Oxford

Special music night performed by the ” Oxford Maqam Band”. Hailing from various backgrounds, what brings Oxford Maqam together is a deep appreciation for music of the Arab world and Turkey of the 19th to mid 20th centuries.
Oxford Maqam, the traditional takht (chamber ensemble) performs with an ear for the more cosmopolitan and improvisatory practices at the turn of the 20th century –
a period of musical renaissance from Istanbul to Cairo.
